boundary_trail_coverConditions: Day Hike
Gear: nothing special
Map: USGS Bearpaw Mountain
Area: Mt Baker Hwy
Reference: 100 Hikes in Washington's North Cascades National Park Region
Stats: 5.18mi, 1319' gain (round trip)

Yana and I headed north, up to the Damfino Lakes area. I was looking forward to a further test of the new knees. We did an easy trip. Parked at the trailhead for Damfino Lakes, dodged the flying vermin at the lakes (mosquitoes and black flies) and then headed along the Boundary Way Trail, then north (right) at the second junction, and then over to Pt 5658 (Cowap Peak). I wasn't willing to do the last bit to the second highpoint (SW of the real high point). I was still getting used to the new hardware. But...the views from up high were incredible!
